Michael Villane, Rumson, NJ — leg surgery
I came to Dr. Rozbruch's office pretty banged up with bowed legs and cartilage worn to the bone after three medial meniscus surgeries. I was in constant pain in both knees. After one look, many doctors said I needed double knee replacements at age 46, and that I would never run again. Dr. Rozbruch gave me the option of undergoing a high tibia osteotomy of both legs to correct my bowed legs. Both surgeries were a complete success and I not only have been able to live pain free but I can run again. Just 5 months after my last external fixator was removed, I competed in several races including a Half Ironman Triathlon, which consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. I had a great race, placing 5th in my age group and 50th overall out of 1000 competitors.
